It's open all year long. My new favorite is the Banana Cream Pie. It's so worth the line if it's long.

This has to be the best ice cream I have ever tasted and a lot of people think the same because there is always a long line regardless of the weather. I've seen people waiting when it was freezing outside. You do have to wait outside for your order. There is construction going on now next to their Fishers store... More

It's well worth it! So many flavors and good prices :-) You will likely experience a long line, but it goes quickly.

There is a reason that people line up for the ice cream at Handel's Homemade Ice Cream - it is simply hand-dipped heaven! With an extremely large number of ice cream choices, there is something for everyone. Expect to wait in line as each dish or cone is specially prepared, and expect to be loving the ice cream.

Unique flavor offerings, reasonable prices. I love that it is open year around, so if you get an ice cream jones in the dead of winter, you can fulfill it. We have plenty of national chain ice parlors in Fishers, but if you want something tasty and a real treat, try this place.

This is an old-fashioned-style walk-up ice cream window. I have never even had the 'creations' like banana splits or hurricanes because there are so many flavors to choose from and they are so good on their own. Coconut cream pie is my fave- it is so rich. Not cheap for ice cream but it's a worthwhile treat.

Been making this a warm weather destination for a few years now, but unfortunately our trip there today may be our last. The prices have increased, the serving size has decreased and the quality was not there. Sorry to see this happen as finding a place for hand-dipped cones is hard to come by.

My boyfriend and I went to Handel's Ice Cream for the first time last night. Our ice cream tasted great and the service was also speedy. The people that worked there were very nice. There was a line to wait to order the ice cream but we hardly had to wait to get the ice cream. We will definitely return... More

Love the ice cream at this place. Definitely worth the trip. My favorite is Graham Central Station, which is a graham cracker based ice cream with chocolate candy and sweet pieces of graham cracker that just melt in your mouth. Very busy in the summer, so be ready to wait if you go during prime time!

There is always a line outside of Handels. In the summer, it's worth it. Their many choices of ice cream are delicious but it's a little pricey so be prepared.
